How do I borrow a book through interlibrary loan?

Can I request a book from another university? Do you offer ILL?


We maintain interlibrary loan relationships with multiple universities. If there is a particular book you'd like for a course assignment, please let us know. We will check our print collections and eBook collections first. These collections connect you with the book the fastest.

If we cannot offer you the book, we can ask our ILL partners if they have available copies for lending. Most ILL requests take at least 2-3 weeks to arrive by mail but vary by university. Contact Ask Your Librarian to place ILL requests. We can also help you find alternative books.
